SuperFood describes a food that is naturally concentrated to provide all the nutritional elements necessary for optimal health. Many of these foods are found in the first link of the food chain, i.e., the plankton which is made purely from sunlight and water, and grasses which are made from soil and sunlight.

Like the planktons, Hydrilla has an abundant source of beta-carotene and chlorophyll. Beta-carotene and Chlorophyll both act as potent detoxifiers and antioxidants in the body. Chlorophyll has a molecular structure very similar to the molecular structure of the human red blood cell, and it is known to be an excellent natural blood builder.
Barley Juice Concentrate is of the highest quality. It is an approximate 40:1 concentration and is processed under low heat without any carrier. It has the highest source of chlorophyll of any barley grass we have ever assayed. Barley grass is rich in potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, phosphorus, manganese, zinc, beta carotene, B1, B2, B6, C, folic acid, and pantothenic acid. Green barley juice contains 11 times the calcium in cows' milk, nearly 5 times the iron in spinach, 7 times the vitamin C in oranges, and 80 mg of vitamin B12 per hundred grams.
